Kyler Murray remains the Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback. However, the team is always looking for ways to shore up its depth chart.
While they have Colt McCoy and David Blough, they’re also keeping their eyes open for other veterans to add to the mix and compete for a roster spot for the 2023 NFL season.
On Thursday it was reported that Arizona brought in former Houston Texans quarterback Jeff Driskel for a workout.
On Friday, it was reported that the team had signed the signal-caller to a contract.
Aaron Wilson of KPRC reports that Driskel is signing a one-year contract with the Cardinals.
The 29-year-old Florida product has played for the Bengals, Lions, Broncos, and most recently, the Texans, since he entered the league in 2016. In 20 career games, Driskel had made 10 career starts, completing 58.6 percent of his passes for 2,166 yards with 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
He’s also compiled a 1-9 record in those 10 starts, so perhaps the Cardinals aren’t looking to him to be a successful starter if something goes wrong with Murray.
Driskel has also played tight end during his NFL career, so perhaps there’s an opportunity for him to move into that role if the QB depth chart fills up.[Aaron Wilson]
